Today is #SmallBusinessSaturday (yiiipppppeeeee!!!!) and it’s predicted to be one of the top 5 busiest days for Christmas shopping this year with up to 75% of purchases being made in-store in the lead up to Christmas.
So whether you’re hitting the High Street or browsing the virtual shopfronts today, why not click that ‘about us’ button before completing any purchases and see whether you’re spending your money with businesses that make the world a better place?
Because small businesses need us. Christmas is near. And they have weeks to ‘make it’ this year. Yes, that’s right… today, tomorrow etc – you get to cast your vote for either the giants or the little guys and girls.
And those of us with small businesses and small dreams, the people close or in the tribe – we shouldn’t be spending the same way as everyone else. We should be leading by example. And I know how hard that can be if you’re in the middle of your busiest period. Amazon can solve many problems. But resist! Let’s show people that 90% of everything you buy, is going to be from your fellow small business. So far I am at 90% and I plan to stay that way.
This sign is created by the brilliant @modocreative and if you’re looking for a thoughtful Christmas gift I highly recommend checking them out and all the amazing businesses on @notonthehighstreet. It’s my 14th Christmas buying from my ‘firstborn’ business and it never disappoints! Happy Saturday and SHOP SMALL FOLKS!
